Found myself swooning over this guy’s work – a combination of photography, acrylic, and eight-bit amazingness. From his site:

Dealing with themes of memory and change, Thornton uses family photos, pop culture, world events, and outdated media to illustrate the modern relevance of these past objects and events. In acrylic paintings, pigment transfers, and marker drawings, the use of erasure and fragmentation represent memory’s imperfections.
